While this is a visually dynamic transformation with an incredibly compelling concept to boot, Go beyond the ego seems to be no more vegetablepriority of Super Dragon Ball. The Saiyan Prince was even developing a replacement for the Ultra Ego and he was kind enough to reveal the basics to a shocked Goku. While this may sound sudden, there is a reasonable explanation for why this is the case, and Vegeta giving up his Ultra Ego has something to do with his overall character development.
In Dragon Ball Super chapter #76 by author Akira Toriyama and artist Toyotarou, Vegeta transformed into Ultra Ego but was still easily defeated by Granolah. Moments before Granolah is about to deliver the killing blow, Vegeta apologizes to Beerus (who taught him to use Hakai, the power of destruction) for not being able to return to the “heartless, emotionless man” he was before and then admit it. The destructive power far surpasses him. On its own, this doesn’t seem to make much sense, but in chapter #69, Beerus informs his students that the reason why his power has no limit is because he only thinks about destruction. destruction, and if Vegeta wants this then he will do it. must “destroy all stray thoughts”.
Vegeta’s growth is the reason he had to give up his super ego
It’s clear that what Vegeta later says in chapter #76 upon being defeated is that his interpretation of how he can truly master Destruction and the Super Ego is to make him a “heartless, emotionless man”, can be understood as returning to his nature. old ways, before life on Earth and family changed him. Based on his actions during his battle with Granolah, it’s clear that Vegeta is trying to bring out the harsher side of his rivalry with Goku like it did when he was still a villain. in Dragon Ball Z during the Saiyan Saga. Vegeta suddenly behaving like a villain again seems very random, but it can be explained by his desire to fully master his new technique and gain the power of God. destroy.
Although Vegeta specifically said that he failed to use the “Power of Destruction” and not the “Super Ego”, it is important to understand the Ultra Ego was inspired by Destruction to the extent that any. When Vegeta transformed for the first time in chapter #74, he said that the God of Destruction taught him “the power that comes from instinct alone is limitless.” Beerus actually told him that his power had no limit because he thought only of Destruction. Furthermore, Dragon Ball Super artist Toyotarou further demonstrated the similarities between Beerus’ Destruction and Ultra Instinct in an interview about Ultra Instinct’s secret origins by noting that the hair Vegeta’s purple color is based on Beerus’ own color. So even though Ultra Ego is Vegeta’s own transformation, it relies heavily on and exploits the Power of Destruction.
Vegeta has overcome his super ego
While this means that Vegeta has failed and given up trying to become a devil again, it also proves that Vegeta’s loss to Ultra Ego was not due to lack of power, nor was it a reflection of ability. of him as a warrior, something many fans trust and believe in. understandably disappointed. Additionally, this explains why in the present arc, while training on Beerus’s planet, Vegeta appears to be developing his version of Ultra Instinct, which relies on concentration and careful energy expenditure. careful, instead focusing on Destruction. While fans absolutely love it Go beyond the ego and believe it is a perfect fir for vegetablethe truth is that the Saiyan Prince has changed too much to blindly follow the path of Destruction, despite his best efforts to become a villain again in Super Dragon Ball.
